Broken pickup

The bridge pickup of my tele custom was accidentally torn off. The wire completely tore from the pot. It's an inexpensive guitar, so I'd like to do the repairs myself for cheap. Any idea how I can go about fixing this?

The neck/middle function works perfectly fine. I just need to do something about the bridge...maybe soldering it back into place or getting new wire for the part?

How do you accidentally tear off a pickup?

As long as the wire is still connected to the pickup, just resolder it back onto the pot.

+1, do this. If the wire was torn out of the pickup you've got a more complicated job.
